This Love Of Mine
Van Morrison Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

This love of mine goes on and on
Though life is empty since you have gone
You're always on my mind though out of sight
It's lonesome through the day but oh, the lonely nights

I cry my heart out, it's bound to break
Since nothing matters just let it break
I ask the sun and the moon and the stars that shine
What's to become of it?
This love of mine

I cry my heart out, it's bound to break
But since nothing matters go ahead and let it break
I ask the sun and the moon and all the stars that shine
What's to become of it?
What's to become of it?




What's to become of it?
This love of mine

Overall Meaning

Van Morrison's This Love of Mine is a heart-wrenching ballad about the pain of lost love. The lyrics speak of a love that is still fervently alive even though the object of the singer's passion has departed. The song is built around a repeating melody that underscores the singer's loneliness and despair.


In the first two lines, the singer declares that his love "goes on and on," but also acknowledges that his life is "empty" without his beloved. He cannot forget her, she is always on his mind, but he cannot see her or be with her. This causes him a great deal of heartache, particularly at night when his loneliness seems to be at its most intense.


The third and fourth lines of the song are particularly poignant. The singer is so lonely that he pleads with the celestial bodies to give him some indication of what will happen to his love. Will it survive even though his lover has gone?


The song's chorus repeats twice, with the same lyrics each time. The singer cries his heart out, knowing that it will break eventually, but unable to stop himself from feeling the pain of his loss. He stares up at the sky, wondering what will happen to his love in the future.


Overall, This Love of Mine is a powerful lament about the agony of love that cannot be fulfilled. It is a reminder that even when love seems to have disappeared, it can still be felt deeply and vividly.

My life feels hollow and meaningless without you


You're always on my mind though out of sight
Even though I can't see you, I constantly think of you
